Samsung has announced the development of a newDDR5 memory standard that supports CXL interface and has a capacity of up to 1 TB. At the first stage, the new memory modules will be used in data centers focused on performing tasks related to high-speed operations (HPC) and calculations based on artificial intelligence.
In the official press release of Samsungthe memory module, which supports the new Compute Express Link (CXL) standard, is reported to be integrated with Double Data Rate 5 (DDR5) technology. The innovation will increase the bandwidth of server systems, accelerate the processing of artificial intelligence (AI) and high performance computing (HPC) data in data centers. However, the CXL, when connected based on the PCI Express (PCIe) 5.0 interface, provides high-speed, low-latency communication between devices.
Samsung also announces the creation of newtechnological solutions for controllers and software that allow processors and video cards to recognize a new type of memory. To date, we have already tested the DDR5 RAM module on Intel servers.
AMD has also indicated its willingness to participate in Samsung's work on the next generation of RAM to "improve performance in cloud and enterprise research."
